The benefits of apprenticeships

Sam Foulsham completed an Electrical Apprenticeship with Playfords Limited between 2018 and 2023 – inclusive of considerable Covid-19 disruption.

Playfords is one of the 100 oldest members of the Electrical Contractors’ Association (ECA) having held membership since 1933.

From their very first day of employment with Playfords, apprentices receive the support and guidance from the entire team. Site-based engineering team members guide and mentor them regarding installation methods and techniques whilst the management team members ensure the correct levels of support and variation of works are seen for each apprentice to bring the opportunity to see their ongoing development at each critical stage of their apprenticeship.

Sam said: “I have taken part in a wide array of different works which has given me the knowledge and confidence I now need to kickstart my future as an electrician. I would recommend anyone to explore undertaking an apprenticeship in electrical contracting as it is a challenging but seldom boring journey.”
